First off, have you seen the previews for Magic Mike? Holy mama!
Channing Tatum is just divine! Even if some of his movies are “just ok”, I still spend the $16 dollar to go see them. I love him!
Ok, I’m stepping off of that cloud and back down to reality. So yesterday was my first day in Phase 3 of the Body Revolution program. For breakfast I had Trader Joe’s steel cut oatmeal with strawberries and blueberries, along with a cup of coffee and a few glasses of water.
I had to switch up my lunch yesterday, as I didn’t make lentils on Sunday night, but my salad with tuna and a homemade vinaigrette was a fantastic midday meal. For a snack I had an apple, cheese stick, and a Blueberry Cobbler Flavor and Fiber bar. As I was going to be taking on Workout 9 yesterday after work, I knew I had to eat a snack late. The protein and fiber from my snacks were perfect pre-workout, giving me the energy I needed for the brutal workout.
Body Revolution Workout 9 is tough! Really tough. I felt like workout 8 was a challenge but workout 9 is IN-tense. Although I am much stronger than I was 9 weeks ago, yesterdays workout was very challenging for me. The great thing is, I know I’ll get better and I know that the workout will get easier in time. I’m nervous to take on Workout 10 today but excited at the same time.
After yesterday’s workout, I continued to get my sweat on by cleaning the apartment before Neal got home. The 7PM-8PM hour is my secret obsession… Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy anyone? The power hour is the perfect time to dust, fold laundry, and prep dinner.
I snacked on some Crispy Asian Pears while I cooked last night’s dinner. They were just ok… but I probably wont buy them again.
For dinner last night I made lentils (leftovers will be used for lunches this week) and fish. The lentils were incredibly easier to make and tasted awesome! I combined 2 cups of chicken broth with 1 cup of lentils.
To the lentils and brother I added diced chives, garlic, Mrs. Dash, salt, and pepper.
After bringing the lentils to a boil, I lowered the heat and covered the lentils cooking them for roughly 40 minutes.
Along with a side salad, last night’s dinner brought the day full circle. The day’s food left me feeling energized, refreshed, and fulfilled… just what I needed the day before my final dress fitting!! I can’t wait to put my dress on later this morning… AHHH so exciting! Well I hope y’all are having a fantastic week and that you’re making healthy decision one moment at a time. Remember, they all add up!
Question of the day: What foods leave you feeling great?
